I'm quite sure some of their apps are proprietary - the browser, for
instance - although I would think the chances of their running a standard
kernel are fairly small. That, however, is irrelevant. If the box is based
on Linux, then anybody who sells it must be someone who "distribute(s)
copies of such a program".
I'm going to take a stroll into Powercity, and ask for a look at the manual.
I'll keep you posted.
